Skip to comments.[Vanity] Why Did Mueller Choose Now to Finish Investigation?
Posted on 04/19/2019 11:49:06 AM PDT by mbarker12474
Given these assumptions:
1. Mueller and his team are smart enough to know there was never any collusion of Trump with Russia...
2. Mueller's fundamental purpose was to run a lengthy (but baseless) investigation which would provide fodder for news and commentary reporting on a continuous basis. A running source of (phony) material for Dems and Trump haters.
3. While there was never any expectation to find collusion with Russia, the powers inherent to the investigation team might lead to criminal charges in other unrelated matters, which would be politically useful for Dems, Progs, etc.
So WHY did Mueller end his investigation now? Why didn't he continue until the end of the Trump presidency? Is he simply personally tired? Want to do some other personal thing? Is he frightened somehow of something..... I see no reason for him to finish up the investigation, given the real purpose of the investigation was to generate continuous political churn.
You took the words right off my fingertips. Exactly right.
Mueller and his posse may have thrown one election, but they knew they wouldn't get away with throwing two.
Dammit, I’m just finishing up my own vanity, where I cover that.
YOUR ANSWER - Barr simply asked Mueller to show him what evidence of collusion they had. When they came back with nothing, he gave them 30 days [or so] to write a final report...that was it.
This entire crap would have wrapped up prior to the 2018 election, except that we lost Alabama and didn’t have enough votes in the Senate to replace Sessions. Sucks that a bunch of conservatives there sat out that election, out of ‘principle’.
I tend to agree: Because of the appointment of Barr. An adult.
Mueller’s investigation may be “over” as far as him leading it; but his task has been from the beginning to harass and impede Trump. He knows well that Congress, led by the hysterical idiots running the House, will gleefully run with all the nuanced insinuations he left behind in his report. And you can clearly tell this by the sheer number of turdettes he left behind.
Dan Bongino’s show makes this fairly clear. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pPkY1E3v-qg&feature=em-uploademail
In at least 3 instances, he brings up his little list of “events”. For example, the Flynn > Kislyak convos. He birngs up that “it was suspected” that blah blah blah but [paraphrasing] ‘...we have determined that there was no significance to these social meetings, that nothing substantial occurred, and there was no relaxation of US policies nor discussion of dilution of same....’
Uhhh, OK, a**hole, then why bring it up?
Then there was the heroic telling of the Don Jr. meeting, where again, “it was suspected” or “there were indications that” but the paragraph concludes with “no evidence was found of.....”
So again, a nothing, a zero, an event of no discernible significance.
Uhhh, OK, then why bring it up?
He brings it up so that it looks like he and his crew considered all the everythings and were thorough.....and even though they found nothing, he wanted to leave as his legacy the playbook for the Dems to bring up, again and again, the same old tired crap, over and over, so that what Robert Mueller missed, Maxine Waters and Elijah Cummings can re-examine with their collective 165 IQ.
That is and was his charge from the beginning. To disrupt and impinge upon Trump’s presidency.
Bob cant protect all his friends anymore.
Considering that the AG is also his friend, his other friends probably don’t have too much to worry about.
‘Mueller would have dragged it out for as long as he could.’
Some here don’t get that. This was intended to carry on through 2020, when hopefully a Democrat would be in power and would get rid of the crap that is about to come out on the spying on Trump - as long as Mueller was there, they could hide EVERYTHING, they needed him to stay put.
They had to run it through the midterms at least to manipulate the voters against Trump.
I’d love to believe this.
But even in winning we still lose. MSM is in “it’s all for the cause” mode abandoning any sense or propriety or responsibility. Congress is in shambles, the people’s house is a lost cause. The next time any one of those corrupt, evil folks from the Clinton/Obama/Pelosi/Shumer machine sees time will be the first time and hell will freeze over.
Perp walks or it didn’t happen at this point.
It is up to the electorate and Dan Crenshaws lots of Dan Crenshaws.
Can the AG prevent Trump from releasing damaging material against his friends?
This sounds like something from Dan Bongino who is very good.
“..and if youre out there MR. HUBER, your REPORT better be good. REAL good. BOMBSHELL good. DEVASTATING FOR THE DEMONRAT COUP-CONSPIRATORS GOOD.”
October Surprise good, maybe????
Chaos to the enemy good???
Handcuffs and belly-chains good?????
A boy can dream....
We haven’t seen any of the stuff Trump has already said he would release.
> “But even in winning we still lose. MSM is in its all for the cause mode abandoning any sense or propriety or responsibility.”
Good grief. MSM can’t even beat the Food Network in ratings and you are ready to throw in the towel.
Bongino is one of the very best!
The Mueller Investigation is old news. It was used and reused to the extent it was no longer relevant.
It’s past time to conclude that and move to Phase II:
Because he had to wait until the midterms were over. (The vast abdication of multiple long time Republican House members, setting the stage for a democrat takeover, was, in my opinion, no coincidence.)
Barr put a stop to it. Which in itself is why the Rats are pissed off. What the next Democrat party elected president should face is the first two years in prison to pay Trump back for what they did to him.
I suspect that the new AG Barr had something to do with it all. “Okay Mueller, wind it up.”
To get the fact that Ruth Ginsberg is still MIA and presumed dead even farther from the minds of Americans?
